Great music begins with a commitment to excellence and a passion for bringing people together.

Orchestra Novo’s purpose is to nourish and inspire our community
through the co-creation and shared experience of orchestral and chamber music
that deepens our connection to one another, our world, and ourselves.

Orchestra Novo serves as a leader in presenting performances and educational programs
that transform and enrich all those with whom we come into contact.
